Ann Coulter - Banned For Life By NBC?

They're getting pretty bold about this sort of thing.

Ann Coulter was scheduled to go on NBC's Today show tommorow morning to promote what will undoubtedly be her next bestseller,Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America a book that focuses on the incredible media bias evidenced by the dinosaur media in the last election cycle.

Instead, she got banned from the network 'for life ' ( translation: until they need her for ratings again):

"We are just not going to have her on any more, it's over," a top
network source explains.

Executives at NBC TODAY replaced Coulter with showbiz reporter Perez
Hilton, who recently offered $1,000 to anyone who would throw a pie at Ann
Coulter. Hilton is also launching a new book this week, RED CARPET SUICIDE.

Coulter was set to unveil her new book, GUILTY. One network insider claims it was the book's theme -- a brutal examination of liberal bias in the new era -- that got executives to dis-invite the controversialist.

"We are just not interested in anyone so highly critical of President-elect Obama, right now," a TODAY insider reveals. "It's such a downer. It's just not the time, and it's not what our audience wants, either." {...}

The exclusive was to air during the show's 7 AM hour. The cut came Monday
afternoon. Coulter was also to appear on the TODAY's fourth hour. A host even teased the segment saying the 'conservative pit bull and bestselling author' would be a guest.

NBC's cable outlet, MSNBC, will also become a Coulter-free zone, insiders explain.

I'm sure MSNBC would much rather listen to the dignified, professorial offerings of Keith Olbermann,no?

Part of what was going on with NBC was a concerted campaign by the George Soros funded 'Media Matters' site to get Coulter axed.

Such fair minded liberals. La Coulter herself is probably getting a good chuckle out of the way NBC just verified the central thesis of her book..not to mention the free publicity!

UPDATE:Coulter didn't skip a beat, and was promptly booked on other outlets. And according toDrudge, some of the suits at NBC are regretting their stupidity and working to get the ban overturned...
